a draft policy you can change that. >> i have a couple comments. there is a process that exist today and it works. so regardless of whether or not we adopt this process, project sponsors can always come back and ask for extension. so even if we adopted this and a project didn't opt in they could still come back and ask for an extension with a hearing, correct? then there is a separate conversation about whether or not 3 years is the correct number of years, we are not talking about that today. in january there is a proposal for extension for 6 years. if that is a conversation to have in the future, i would like to see really robust research in terms of data and the process of how the years were determined. so i think we are not quite ready for that conversation yet. i want to reiterate that. so as far as the the tightening of the language it mirrors what they are already doing, it just makes it a little bit more clear that project sponsors don't have an entitlement after 3 years. as for the program i am open to the idea of some sort of stimulus program that present offered by

. and that is quite an achievement for us. on the change column, a little bit to the left, you will see that the margin of scores that changed from last year is somewhat small. we think most of the scores are insignificant statistically and the big point that we can see from the chart is almost all of the psas are able to approach or are well-above the 85% threshold we aim for. what we're trying to do for the public, of course, is to present outcomes that they can appreciate. you know, to provide parks that have great facilities, and so when we do our park evaluations we break them out into 14 features. these are the various aspects of the park the benchs, the children's play areas, hard scapes, lawns, that really denote the various types of maintenance and types of experiences that the users have. again they have been very stable. the changes since the last year are fairly small. and over the time you can see that the department is has really different focus to the area s where there is high use, the gardens, restrooms, athletic fields have improved. there are low use areas, wider in

for change has happened. as you request for further outreach, this additional engagement and iterative changes certainly did happen. next, you requested to consider extending the appeal period. this change has been considered, but has not yet been made uniformly. what has changed is where appeal noticing requirements have been met, the appeal where they have not been met, the appeal window would be open, meaning there is requirements and if you don't meet them, the clock doesn't start running. what has not yet changed is uniformly extending the appeal window for all appeal types. the proposal is at 20 days. today we're going to ask you to ask the supervisor to continue extending that to 30. and lastly, the commission asks for clarity as to the trigger for the appeal window. this is now been definitively defined. the window for appeal would begin at the first approval action and depending on the type of projects. for exemptions of private projects, the first approval would either be at a publicly noticed hearing by the planning commission or the zoning administrator and these would incl

've actually colored them in yellow. and i can explain this. really basically one set of changes that causes some further amendments to be made. as you recall, at the last rules committee meeting on this legislation, one of the main purpose of these recent changes is to change the nomination period specifically to clarify that it only applies to candidates and the mayor and the board of supervisors. some of the deadlines were changed in the [speaker not understood] of the committee to be considered. upon further consideration in preparation for today's hearing, we noticed one of the relevant nomination periods, the e 171 through e 146 after we consult an election calendar, we found out that e 171 date are the 171st day before election day actually fell on a saturday. obviously we didn't want to create a nomination time period where the first day on the option of the candidate filing on the first day when actually show up to city hall, the department of elections and find out it's closed. we wanted to move it a day friday in which the candidate could actually file the required papers. so, we

, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to mak
